Colour for face.


I know that in winter everyone gets a little paler. But do you think that bronzers are okay for winter?

I have an aristocratic teint

Yes, I would love to hear the answer to this too. My skin takes on a pale white, almost sickly color in the winter. I used to joke that I literally have "blue blood"; now I just want to cry. I am not the type to fake bake, so please, if anyone knows the answer to the bronzer question, fill us in!

Scents Of Peace

Opinion from a pale Floridian . . .

Okay, here in Florida the only ones with a good tan are usually the tourists, the unemployed or those who look like rawhide from too much sun. Having said that, the generally accepted look here is . . . "as long as it looks natural." In today's age of tanning salons, I think bronzers are acceptable anywhere you live. If in doubt, simply use a bronzer in place of your usual blusher for a sun-kissed look. And don't forget your neckline, especially if you're going to be photographed. There is a huge difference between looking radiant and glowing, so don't overdo it !

From other posts, I know you take your vitamins but I'm going to say this anyway. Take plenty of Vitamin C. The reason is because Vitamin C is so valuable in often unrealized ways. For example, it is necessary for the absorption of iron, which binds in the blood cell to carry oxygen from the lungs. I suffer from low ferritin anemia and have to bulk up on Vit C to assist my absorption of iron. As another point of interest (since I'm already off topic), calcium interferes with iron absorption, so it is important which vitamins to take together.

Foundation Help

Women should as a rule have 2 foundations:
1 for the summer
1 for the winter

In all cases, your foundation should match your skin tone.

Bronzers are perfect for the winter. Apply a little powdered bronzer strategically to your face with a big brush is just what the doctor ordered.

I also recommend lightly dusting some on the contour of your face to mask any foundation lines. I also like to mix a bit of bronzer with my face powder for a subtle sun kissed glow.

A little goes a long way.

Bronzer for all seasons

I think it is okay to wear bronzers in the winter, I do. I do agree that women should have two sets of foundation though...one for the darker months one for the paler ones! :o)

The thing is also, that I am always pale! Season round,.. because I am fair I don't tan that easily but burn and freckle. Because I am so used to being pale all the time, when I am a little tanned it looks strange to me!

What bronzers?

What bronzers have you tried? I heard The Body Shop has a good bronzer for fairer skin types. My friend swears by it and has a similar skin tone to yours. I will ask her what the bronzer is called and get back to you!
